Today, I spent more time driving than actually on the hill.
Therefore, apart from listening to the radio, I tend to notice things.
Observation #1: Queenie (or somebody else who wears a silly hat) must be in the area since the valley was swarming with Police.
Observation #2: It is without doubt, grouse shooting season. Must have passed about 6 separate parties today, all looking very pucka in their tweeds and dogs that are obviously not pets.
So, if your not careful, there is a danger of being taken out, on and off the hill today.
Observation #3: The Cairngorms are massive. When most people refer to climbing 'over the back', I would assume that they are speaking about the Loch Avon basin. So, if you are a Southern Cairngorm based climber, what do they call it?
Observation #4: It is obviously D of E season judging by the amount of little people - with ridiculously big rucksacks on - plugged into their iPods, walking in the middle of the roads that are completely obviously to traffic. Ah, fond memories :)
